TINALISAYAN ISLAND (Travel Guide)
After visiting Sombrero Island we went to Tinalisayan Island. It was 30 minutes boat ride half of the way to San Pascual Port. One of the most beautiful islands with a small sand bar, clear water and white sand. There is an entrance fee of 50 PHP per adult and Tinalisayan Island was very clean. If you want to get an open cottage for 300 PHP to have lunch. There are no cottages for sleeping in Tinalisayan Island. You can pitch your tent if you are bringing and you talk to the owner in the island.
We enjoyed a few hours taking pictures, flying the drone, swimming, snorkeling, taking under watershots before coming back to San Pascual. There are no cottages in this island but there are tables if you are planning to have your lunch there. It was our favorite one in our Burias Island Tour.
We spent more than 2 hours in Tinalisayan Island since we were alone we wanted to enjoy the paradise. You can go swimming around the island since there are no waves is quiet and calm. Make sure you bring snorkeling gear since the boatmen will not provide. And it’s clear the water plus you will see many fishes around.
